If the Philosopher is Wrong

If the philosopher is wrong
that all we are,
and all the earth around us
is completely real,

even if that means
that everything is what it is
just waiting to die,

that the sun, that the grass
are all mortal,
and the mountains and sky
will eventually crumble,

that everything is different
in good or bad ways,
all is dead or alive or somewhere in between,
like being alive is death and death is life,
then you too are real and dead.

Which last night and
the night before that,
you were alive.
